DEX <STATISITC> PLOTName:
This plot graphically shows the following:
The DEX ... PLOT is most commonly used for the mean. However, you can in fact generate this plot for any statistic supported in Dataplot. The primary application of this plot is in the analysis of 2level full or fractional designs to identify the most important factors.
<SUBSET/EXCEPT/FOR qualification> where <y1> ... <y3> is a list of one to three response variables (depending on the requested statistic); <x1> ... <xk> is a list of one to k factor variables; <stat> is the desired statistic; and where the <SUBSET/EXCEPT/FOR qualification> is optional. For a list of supported statistics, enter HELP STATISTICS.

To include both 2term and 3term interaction effects, enter
To restore the default of main effects only, enter
When interaction terms are requested, the terms are written to file "dpst5f.dat" in the order they are generated on the plot. For example, for three factor variables where both 2term and 3term interactions are requested, the following will be written to dpst5f.dat
X2 X3 X1*X2 X1*X3 X2*X3 X1*X2*X3
